If you have a child, be aware this is no tame city park. Young adults picnic and drink and smoke and whatever and leave mountains trash (and maybe a drug or two) for others to pick up. There are a fair number of rather unwashed characters lurking about. Just keep a sharp eye out . Between the creepy folks mentioned... More

Well located south of the main hub of Amsterdam, Vondelpark was a lovely getaway. Myself and my girlfriend enjoyed a leisurely stroll around the beautiful lake soaking up the sun. Many benches line the walk meaning you are never too far away from a seat. A must visit location if you are in Amsterdam!

We trapsed through this park and marveled at its beauty, as well as the variety of happenings throughout it. People were running, biking, watching a children's puppet show, etc. Plus, there were different ponds throughout it as well as a canal by its side. If I lived in Amsterdam, which would be a dream come true, I'd go here every... More

What's special about this park is the large amount of birds flying around! we enjoyed walking about and just lazing about on the benches.

Always a nice experience (especially when the sun is out). Waterways and small lakes in the middle. Rent a bike and explore! DO IT.

Heard about this park and decided to rent a bike and ride down there as it was about 45 minutes away from the Centraal Station. Make sure to go on a day when it is not raining! It is a very big park, especially made for biking, walking, running etc. Everyone is doing something and the scenery is absolutely beautiful.... More

We had a fab time riding around vondel park on our hire bikes. We hired bikes for 12 euro's for 24 hours and went to explore the city. The separate cycle lanes make it a lot easier to get around and makes you feel safe. Mopeds are also allowed to use the cycle lanes and can also ride through the... More

One of my favourite parks in the world - a haven for everyone who lives there and a chance for anyone who isn't purely interested in the café culture to chill out in Amsterdam. Pretty handy for Leidseplein.

We loved the Vondelpark. It's a great place to picnic and to ride bikes through. Go to the nearest market, pick up some bread and cheese and have a picnic.

Nice park very near our Hotel (Hotel Iron Horse). Lots of interesting residential architectural styles. Lots of shops and eateries near by. Know for open-air concerts. We did not see any this trip.
